Wow, he looks very sinister, but it looks great. I like that song tho, I like the remix melody of it. :)

L Skylar Brown,
I am certain that I have seen that face before in a crowd, or did I
possibly pass him by while shopping at the mall? Think we may have
exchanged brief glances, I seem to remember those intense, riveting
eyes but ... I also recall noticing him walking along the avenue alone,
though he seemed to be concerned about something.

Funny and ... I almost hesitate to mention this but I happened to be
sky watching the other day and could have sworn ... oh I know this
might sound silly but ... there was this rather odd cloud formation that
appeared to take on the features of ... but only for a brief moment
and then ... the sky seemed to immediately transform into this most
heavenly shade of blue as this unique cloud structure almost seemed
to, well ... look down at me and ... smile. :)

Skyler, I love this for a lot of reasons, but, most of all, because you didn't depict him as a Saxon prince with a besotted expression.

It may sound odd and is hard to express, but I know this face. I never bought the passive face of Christ seen on so many works of art as real. The man was brave, strong, and deeply genuine. I see him as I believe him to be in this picture. Amazing.

When I posted this, I had intended to leave it to its own, and any comments that came with it. I have sought, studied, and meditated on Christ for most of my adult life, and I see his Presence much as I represented him here. And, "sbrothers", as you so succinctly stated - strong, real, and meaningful.
Thank you all for the kind words.

L Skylar Brown,
When I posted the above reply to your painting, in particular the second
paragraph where I imagined that the sky seem to "look down at me and
smile," I also intended to leave it on it's own but one recent early morning
I took a photo of a Crescent moon that greeted my day and posted the
below image mentioning how it seemed that the sky was, well ... "smiling
down at me." So interesting it is how little, seemingly insignificant things
that are tucked away in the recesses one's mind can resurface and be
much more meaningful that first conceived. :)

Mairz - I agree. Some things we note in passing reappear, with more import because of that first brush. Please keep posting your prose - it is laden with imagry that sparks imagination.
